Who am I?
I am Jen, a girl passionate about Jesus and helping people to know how to walk intimately with Him. I have been married for 12 years to my husband, Craig, and we have two daughters, ages 8 and 6.
Why do I blog?
When I first thought about blogging and was racking my brain for a title, I was longing for a little slice of heaven in my life. The intent of the blog, and still is for the most part, is to put words to the experiences of my walk with God -- in the mundane details and the big milestones.Most days it is so easy for me to get bogged down in my reality, the tangible, day-to-day happenings that make up my life. Oh, but so much more is waiting for me if I would come and sit awhile with Him. No matter what situations seem to define my life, there is a piece of Heaven waiting for me - a place of peace, restoration, and comfort. Being in this world is hard. Daily struggles, tribulations, and people pulling us in all different directions can take a toll on our lives. Somehow, though, finding a piece of Heaven can give us a new outlook, a new purpose, and direction we may have never considered. Finding God in those quiet moments brings refreshment to our malnourished souls. I am not great at keeping a personal journal, but thought that I might be more willing to write down my revelations if someone else might respond. That's a good reason to blog, right?
And then, my grandmother became deathly ill. And then, she died.
The blog then became my outlet for my grief, a grief I had never experienced before in my life. And I was literally trying to find Heaven so that I could figure out how to still keep my sweet Grannie in my life.
Through this whole process, I have fallen in love with writing. I have fallen in love with the people I have meet in this blogosphere. And I have fallen even more deeply in love with my Savior, who makes all of this possible.
